On Friday, October 10, Van Antwerp Middle School held its annual Community Day. The program included faculty, staff and community-facilitated workshops which focused on a number of teacher and student interests.
Workshops included fishing, tie-dye, mountain biking, curling, robotics, mural painting and backyard games. The activities are intended to help students get to know each other and the adults they work with in a new context, leading to a stronger sense of community throughout the year.
Community Day was topped off by a schoolwide anti-bullying assembly featuring comedian Michael Speirs. It was a great day, due in large part to the full planning and work of our entire school community. Great job VA!
